The Creative CIO’s Agenda: Six Big Bets for Digital Transformation

KPMG member firms’ experience with digital disruption has enabled us to identify six key initiatives, or ‘big bets’ that CIOs and IT leaders must consider now to position their organizations to be ready so as to innovate and remain relevant in the fourth industrial revolution. 

  • The effects of combined disruptive technologies, and a technology-savvy population eager to embrace them will have a profound impact on the world as we know it
  • The fourth industrial revolution will be marked by the ability to make almost anything, connect almost everything from everywhere, datify and digitize almost everything, access virtually unlimited content and compute cycles, and automate knowledge work 
  • We have identified 6 “big bets” that CIOs need to make now to both defend against disruption and be disruptors themselves.  The report describes each in more detail:

          1.  Journey to the Cloud

          2.  Digital Labor

          3.  Omnichannel Consumer Experience

          4.  Internet of Services

          5.  Continuous Delivery

          6.  Next Generation IT Operating Model 

  • Each of these should be evaluated in terms of their relevance and potential benefits to your organization. The report includes recommended next steps while conducting this evaluation
  • CIOs that can deliver a competitive advantage for their business are those that understand the implications these technologies will have, and can harness them to create new business models, products, services and ways of engaging with customers. But speed is of the essence.
